In the space of one week, four boys were rushed to the paediatric unit at Falun hospital. All had contracted the infection after being circumcised by the person, who is not a doctor but who is licensed to circumcise boys under the age of two months.
According to local newspaper Dala-Demokraten, the children in question were between ten weeks and 16 months old, so should therefore have been circumcised by a licensed doctor.
